I was in London a while back and I stopped in the British Museum to see the Rosetta Stone. They have a pretty good museum there and when I was wandering around I found a little display on ancient crafts men. I hadn’t seen these pics for a bit but when I found them I thought maybe they were worth sharing.

I should have taken more photos of that exhibit but my wife was making fun of me.

That’s pretty neat! Always interesting to see that kind of pic or display.

That’s a cool looking saw the craftsman is using. Looks like a good design. Thanks for the post.
